Subject: [AH] NEWS FLASH : Newbie posting gets bitten on ass :P

Hello people...

OK... it looks like no one wants my Jupiter 4, and fair enough, given
the criticism of the pricing ∗hids head in shame∗.

I went and checked out the current street price of the Jupiter 4 on
VSE ( . They quote it
being $450 US, which now is a little over $900 AU. I think that this
would do me very nicely. Now, I check out and find out
that their price for the Korg Electribe EA-1 (which I ideally want)
is... $299.95 US.

Now be very very conservative and take $99 USD off the new price for
an example second hand price of $200 USD. In my mind, $450 USD is a
bit more than $200 USD. The Jup4 isn't in excellent top condition,
but, $350 USD is still better than $200 USD for a used EA-1. And
remember all the $$$ prices I quoted were in AUD (AUstralian Dollar),
which at the moment is roughly 2 AUD = 1 USD.

I'm not having a cry about the fact that no one on this list wants to
buy my synth. I'm not having the "im a newbie so go easy" cry (I'm a
writer for Australia's biggest computer hardware site, and am trained
to recognise newbies at 50 metres :). I'm just explaining my logic. If
no one wants my synth, hey, I'm cool with that, I just thought that as
a member of this list I'd take the consideration of asking if there is
anyone who might want/need a synth like this, as the list has helped
me with queries in the past. If you want to discourage this activity,
feel free...

I haven't been on this list for very long... maybe 2-3 months. But I
do like it, and have seen people posting FS items etc. I guess I'll try the
boards, or ∗bay if I get nowhere.
